A part of me wants to talk about how I attempted to photograph my latest oatmeal recipe before eating anything and the wicked witch of the west came out to play, but today we’re talking waffles.

A part of me wants to talk about how I wished you guys had voted for the oatmeal instead of the waffles in my Facebook and Twitter poll because I actually have something to write about the oatmeal, but you didn’t.

  1. Davida, these look INCREDIBLE. They’re on my must-try list, and I just pinned them! Found you on Hello Veggy’s Healthy Vegan Friday. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Haha love this post… Pshhh writers block whaaaa?! Taking raw healthy ingredients and making it something delectable is write up my alley girl!! First time on your blog! Love it 🙂 totally making this. Kinda obsessed with lemons here… 😀

  3. Ahhh writer’s block….the bane of a blogger’s existence. It happens! Your rambling was entertaining though 🙂 And these pictures ARE incredible! The fact that those pancakes are lemon makes it even better!

  4. Hi Davida,
    Wow, you made me remember when I was little when my grandmother used to make buckwheat pancakes. I loved them but no one else in my family now does so I never make them. Maybe they’d go for the waffles?

    1. I hope so!!! I actually had banana chocolate chip buckwheat pancakes the other day and they were fabulous! I bet your family would totally gobble them up! I didn’t notice the buckwheat at all with the banana and chocolate 🙂

  5. A part of me wants to tell you that I loved reading your rant about everything BUT waffles (which look very yummy BTW)!! 🙂

    1. hahaha it’s kind of remarkable how I wrote an entire post about waffles and only mentioned waffles in the last line. I’m such a food blogger fail!

  6. You should brag about these pictures They’re incredible…so much so, you don’t even need to talk about the waffles. They sell themselves.

  7. OMG I’m cracking up right now… just because of what you texted me about this post. But I really want to make these, I’m just terrible at making waffles. I’ll just have to wait to come to Toronto so you can make Ang and I waffles for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  8. *raising hand* Um, I would very much like to hear more about the whole chicken-eating weirdo on the subway, please. On another note, I just found your blog and so far really like it. I will be perusing to try and find more healthy recipe ideas. Nice to meet ya!

  9. So I adore lemon. And buckwheat. And I just got a hand me down waffle maker. These must be signs, no?

  10. Girl. Not only do I not have a waffle maker but I don’t have buckwheat flour and there’s no way I’m finding that here in Mexico. I’ll just have to wait until you cave and post the oatmeal recipe…cuz I know it’s going to happen!

    1. posted it as soon as I could just cause I felt horrible you had nothing involved in this recipe! At least you have sun and warmth right?!
